I'm off my restrictions and am searching for a new cruiser. I want something that will last a few years and won't feel too underpowered in a years time. I don't want something that will just be too big and heavy to handle given I've only ever been riding a 250. Haven't had time to organise any test rides, looking for input from others that either own or have test ridden any of these bikes. My current shortlist from visiting the bike expo last weekend: Triumph Speedmaster - looks really nice. My heart is choosing this one. It's a name with heritage, I think the lines and the look are just right. What I don't like about it is that it's chain driven & isn't fuel injected. Kawasaki VN900 Custom - looks quite nice, pretty good sized fuel tank, not too expensive. Belt driven and fuel injected. Not too heavy. Yamaha VStar 1300A - looks ok, I'm familiar with Yamaha and my local dealer/servicing, has more modern technology than most other cruisers, so I'm told, has the LCD readout mode change on the right handlebar which seems safer. Concern is that 1300cc is a bit big to jump on after only riding a 250, also weight. Kawasaki VN1600 Mean Streak - wow....looks like it's name. Definitely not a classic cruiser look, but I like it. Similar concerns on being too powerful for someone just off restrictions. If I had to choose right now I think I'd go the Triumph with the VN1600 a close second. I've discounted the Suzuki M50 and C50 because even though I'm thinking that a 1300 or 1600 is too big, I think they might be a little too underpowered longer term. I'll probably find them great now, and in a years time need to upgrade. I've discounted the Suzuki M109, even though I love the way it looks I think it would be a bit too powerful. I had a look at the Honda 750 and 1300 at the expo and wasn't overly keen on the look and feel, the 1300 felt quite heavy. So, any comments suggestions? This will be a bike I'll ride daily and I'm not overly concerned with resale value but I will be putting around 30,000kms on it each year.
